Spacers?

Whatsup guys, some of you may know I recently went with a 17in staggered matte black bullits on my 02 GT, I've wanted that mean rear stance you see with the 315s, they are absolutely better looking than the stocks, but wanting it a bit out more for that classic muscle look..so think I may go with some spacers, I've heard iffy things on them tho, some say run them no problem with stock studs, some say absolutely no, I've heard spacers are fine to run on a DD as long as you stay with around 1/4, anything bigger is a bit iffy?...could you guys clear this up for me? Thanks guys..

It depends on the spacers and the offset of your wheels. Sometimes they don't leave enough stud on the wheel to put your lugs on, and if they are too big spacers you could break a stud. I wouldn't go more than 1/8-1/4 inch honestly

Yea maybe I'll play it safe and go with 1/8in, I feel even 1/8in spacer will make a nice difference to the rear stance

I've thought about it also, because I've got 10" wide with 285s, they do look a lot better but they would look better a little more flush.

I have 275 on 18x9 all around and i wanted to push out the backs a bit, i got 25mm black eibach spacers and they work great, they have new studs built into them. Also most mustang real/clone wheels have small recesses on the back of the wheel so if the stock stud sticks out it wont hit, hope this helps

I think I'm gonna end up going with either 1/8in or 1/4in for safety reasons

They have replacement studs. You bolt on the spacer using the original studs then the spacers have new ones.

Rolled fenders? I'm thinking if I get a dd that 335 Hoosiers are gonna be the next rear for me. I know someone who has 345/40/17 on 10.5 wheel. So I figure 335 wouldn't look too bad.

No I didn't roll the fenders but that's where it was rubbin when I went over a bump to fast.. It looked badass. But all those pics were on my old iphone so I lost them
